Daytona 500 2012 Live Update: Casey Mears, Marcos Ambrose Spin

The cars are back on the track in the Daytona 500 and it didn't take long for another caution to come out. Just a few laps after the restart, Casey Mears and Marcos Ambrose each spun out, though no real damage was done. Neither car appeared to sustain any damage, but the caution was out for quite a bit of time as the debris was cleared from the track.
